Getting Dry!

Posted on September 20th, 2019 by Ford Waterstrat

I'm feeling very thankful that we've been able to provide you with so many great products from our farm this year and can't wait to bring you more in 2020! Did you see the picture of us planting strawberries for the 2020 season? They will grow this fall, go dormant when it gets really cold, and then start growing again when it warms up in the spring. The creek that we pump water out of at our home farm for the strawberries has stopped flowing. As you can imagine, with temps in the 90's these new strawberry plants require a lot of water to get established. I will likely have to go pump water out of a pond upstream and hope that enough water flows to our irrigation pump. Keeping our fingers crossed!

We hope that you're enjoying the transition to winter squashes, potatoes and sweet potatoes. Our fall broccoli, cabbage, and lettuce did not get irrigated and dried up. But we have plenty of tomatoes and cherry tomatoes still producing well!

Thanks again!
